The Power of Blogging

May 14, 2017

Some of you will no doubt be aware that in the last week I have launched my first coaching ‘product’. It’s a 10 day live group coaching programme, called the Get Blogging Bootcamp.


I’ve been pushing myself way out of my comfort zone getting this out there – I am the most unsales-y person imaginable. The whole thought of trying to sell something to someone makes me feel hugely uncomfortable and makes my stomach go all churny. Not good.
BUT I’ve been pushing myself to do this, and to promote this course because I really believe in the power of blogging, and I want to be able to help as many people as possible to get their stories and their messages out there.

I’m back!

May 3, 2017

Hello hello!
HUGE apologies for total lack of posts for the whole of April – I had grand plans of a whole series of posts around clothes and fast fashion, and stuff around Fashion Revolution Week etc etc, but just ran out of time and energy.
So why so quiet?

I wanted to let you guys what I have been up to, firstly to explain my unplanned absence, and secondly, because some of you might be able to help me, and that would be very lovely indeed!

Really Useful Tips to Grow Your Own for Beginner Gardeners!

April 1, 2017

If you are anything like me, the idea of Growing Your Own fruit Grow is massively appealing, but also a little intimidating. My mum was a very keen gardener, so I never really bothered to learn, relying instead on the glut from their allotment, and my mum’s inability to not potter around our garden doing all the jobs whenever she visited. Now she is no longer with us, I am realising quite how much I regret not tapping into her wisdom and knowledge (about so many things, not just gardening) and it all suddenly seems a little daunting.

I decided that it can’t be just me who would love a really basic, ‘idiot’s guide’ to getting started with growing my own fruit and veg, so I asked in my fabulous Facebook group for tips for beginners, and as ever, the wonderful community there came up trumps.

Here are some top tips for beginner gardeners to get started growing their own fruit and veg this season.
